    I had a question on the next gen of DVD players. I know the DVD-Forum announced the audio and video specs for HD-DVD. I think the audio was going to be HD-DTS, MLP, and Dolby Digital. Will the digital outputs work with current DTS and DD recievers or will we have to buy a seperate decoder or will the players have the decoders built in and 5.1(or greater) analog outputs?

    I think we'll be able to get along without a seperate decoder.

    Travis, for HD DVD (no hyphen, folks!), the first players are being released in the fourth quarter, along with more than a hundred HD DVD titles. As for Blu-ray, not announced. So expect the first Blu-ray players (and, one supposes, titles) in the first quarter of 2006.
